Pros: - 7 fans with controllable speeds
- Nice green LED lights to match your gaming peripherals
- Easy to manage and/or install different PC components
- Hole in the other side of the case to install CPU heat sink (so you don't have to remove the motherboard)
Cons: - Heavy, but it's mostly just because the case I used to have was much lighter
- No documentation (see Other thoughts)
- Although built for cable management, the cables it brings themselves are not pre-managed and you need to spend time figuring out what each cable does
Other Thoughts: One of the biggest drawbacks for this incredible and well designed case is the lack of documentation. My previous case had some sort of instructions booklet that told you what each cable does, while this case does not. Although this case does have labels on the cables, as an inexperienced user, I did not know exactly what to do with each.
One of the biggest issues was that each fan has two outward sockets (because this case supports two configurations). If you want the fans to always be on, you can connect the power supply's peripheral cables (4 pins) to each fan fine and dandy. However, if you want to be able to control the speed of each fan, you need to connect each fan to the controller through small pins that look similar to the CPU fan. What did I do? I connected both the 4 pins and the smaller pins. Needless to say, as soon as I lowered my fan speed, I short circuited my entire system! Luckily everything was fine after that, but it could have easily been prevented if they had some sort of documentation available.
